RedYoshi999 commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming? Explores The Legen...:

I probably do owe Twilight Princess another replay. It's been a few years since I've played it and it's still one of my favourites. I've already replayed Ocarina and Majora's Mask this year, and just last night got back into Wind Waker HD (realised I had an unstarted second quest file.)



RedYoshi999 commented on Black New Nintendo 3DS and Animal Crossing: Ha...:

Yeah would've preferred the black model last year, but I've bought enough 3DS's in my lifetime to not need another one. Still have the Majora's Mask XL model I'm keeping as a collectors item while I use my regular white 3DS.



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

I didn't find out for a week since I had no internet but this still hit me really hard. I'm sorry you couldn't make it to E3 and had to deal with the backlash. We will always remember what you did for Nintendo Iwata-san. Rest in peace.



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd July (Europe):

N64 games two weeks in a row is certainly a pleasant sight to me! Unfortunately not the games I'm looking for. Not interested in Kirby and I never bought Ocarina on the VC due to having the original, Master Quest GCN disc and 3DS remake, so I won't be going back to this. But keep the games coming Nintendo! I need Mario Kart 64 and the Mario Parties.



RedYoshi999 commented on Ryu, Roy, New Stages and More Now Available in...:

I just cant justify these prices. Nearly $40 for what amounts to 3 characters and 2 stages, when the full game already cost me $80 is absurd. Mario Kart did it right, not this. Not particularly interested in buying one of the characters or stages individually either. Just gonna stick to the free Miiverse stage.



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo is Discontinuing the Basic 8GB Wii U ...:

I've never liked white consoles. The irony is my Wii, DSi and now the new 3DS were all white because of either a lack of an alternative colour or the store only had white left. If Nintendo wants to increase sales they should release some new colours (I'd love a red Wii U!)



RedYoshi999 commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (Europe):

Alright we finally get Paper Mario. Not that I'm buying it (have it on Wii VC and finished it - not looking to replay it) I'm just glad we might get some surprise new N64 games now. Tempted to get Epic Yarn though.



RedYoshi999 commented on Splatoon Global Testfire is Confirmed for One ...:

Nope, won't be rushing to play this at 6am, no matter how much I enjoyed the first round. Not sure how Australia will price this. Mario Party 10 was $10 less than usual ($70 instead of $80) but EB Games seems to be sticking with the $80 price tag on this.



RedYoshi999 commented on Buy Three Nintendo 64 and DS Virtual Console G...:

I don't even care about 60Hz/50Hz. All I want are the games. I suppose the upside to only having 20 odd N64 games on the Wii is that it won't take Nintendo long to re-release them, so we can get new titles, ala DK64.

Anyway, I think I'll pass on the deal. Upgraded SM64 and bought DK64 already, but MKDS is pointless without multiplayer and I'm not really interested in WarioWare. I like that N64 games have dropped in price in Australia though (used to be 1000 Nintendo Points or $15, now $13.)



RedYoshi999 commented on Launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N...:

Has anyone ever thought that it's scalpers buying from scalpers on eBay? The ones selling it now are looking for a quick buck whereas the ones buying it now are in for the long haul, sitting on it while it grows in value. Of course there's your desperate fans too.



RedYoshi999 commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I think numbered scores are still useful, although a 10 point scale is a little restrictive. I'd much prefer a 100 point scale or at least using half numbers on the 10 point scale. NintendoLife's reviews tend to be very long, and I don't always have the time to read them, especially if I'm not that interested in the game, so yes I often read the conclusion and the score. I'm not really a fan of GameXplain's new review system, because it doesn't seem like they have a consistent set of 'emotions' and it's hard to determine which ones are better than others. (does 'liked' mean its really worth your time? I can say I liked a 6/10 game but there are plenty of others worth buying beforehand.)



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

There are 3 3DS Zelda games all deserving of 10's, not just because they're Zelda games, but because they're amazing games. While I've replayed Ocarina of Time so many times already, it's still an enjoyable game (in fact I'm currently playing Master Quest 3D) which is a testament to its quality. ALBW was also an amazing experience, and that's coming from someone who didn't like ALTTP one bit. And Majora's Mask is my favourite game of all time, so it's always worthy of a 10 in my book.

Considering development has been on and off since OOT3D released in 2011, and the original game was made in a year, I don't think Nintendo's resources were wasted one bit. We definitely would not have seen a new game come out in place of MM3D next week. If you want to argue about a remake that isn't really necessary, then Xenoblade Chronicles 3D would be a much better bet, along with DKCR3D (or any Wii game really.)

Can't wait for next Sunday to pick up my limited edition 3DS XL and special edition copy of the game! All my dreams have come true at last haha.



RedYoshi999 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Achoo My issue isn't really with the fact you can play them on Wii mode (though it's hardly desirable), it's that there's only about 20 N64 games on the Wii Shop. There's plenty more games I've been waiting years to see. Giving us GamePad support for Wii VC would only be a stopgap solution, I want to see NEW N64 games come to the VC. That's more of a general issue though, since most of the NES/SNES releases aren't new either. The only VC I find myself buying are the GBA games since they're actually new to the service and I don't already own them.



RedYoshi999 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

I nearly commented on the forums today when the topic popped back up again to tell people to give up already, glad I didn't now. Can't believe Nintendo is bothering with it after all this time. It's nice it's free but I'm still not interested in using it, especially without online features.



RedYoshi999 commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Ah thats a shame. I enjoyed Club Nintendo for what it was. Contrary to popular opinion, the Australian store has improved over the last year to the point where I didn't have enough stars to get what I wanted, when I had hoarded 20,000 stars waiting for something good. Hopefully there's a good replacement coming since the DDP ended too it's quite painful to buy digital now.



RedYoshi999 commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

EB Games Australia did it's bit by limiting pre orders to one per customer. Managed to snag one when I woke up before work. After work it was sold out! Been really lucky with these. I also snagged the special edition before it sold out.



RedYoshi999 commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Begins Its ...:

Can't believe its so close! I'm compelled to buy the XL system now even though I already have a regular new 3DS. Also want to buy those MM cover plates. Plus I've pre ordered the special edition. So much going on for one game!



RedYoshi999 commented on Review: Mario Party Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

This was the only Mario Party game I didn't own (and couldn't because I don't have a GBA) so I'm glad to see a VC release. The lack of multiplayer will make it impossible to play with friends but at least the single player is ok. It's certainly not the worst in the series (I'm looking at you Island Tour) but I would much rather play Mario Party 3 on Wii U.



RedYoshi999 commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

Finished with 9501 points after last weeks VC releases and taking the plunge on the Pikmin movies (which cost 50c less than the voucher so win-win!) All up I earned $133. Definitely an awesome promo. Will continue to buy digital too (starting with Captain Toad today)
